Re: 2013 New Beginnings: Hop on the Hopman Cup Express

Hi everyone!

Sorry I haven't posted before but have been busy celebrating new years etc! So I was at the Hopman cup for USA vs. SA. Was totally awesome to see Venus live again!

She def started off a bit slow, but I think she was still really jet lagged. Her serve looks much better, I was a bit worried at the start when she was practicing and just rolling them in, but she upped the pace when the match actually started and didn't seem to be having any issues with her back

The mixed doubles was really fun to watch as well, especially when Venus was hammering back those serves from Anderson The serve on MP as well

Unfortunately I can't go to the session tonight, but I will be going again for the Thursday session!

"I want to do things on my own terms, I can't have anything take me out.
I have never given up and it's important for me to prove to myself that I can do this, and to prove to me that i'm a champion.
If I were just to sit down, lay down and give in, then I wouldn't have any respect for myself."

PS. The weather has cooled off a bit here now, Thursday is meant to be even cooler. I have no idea how they played in that heat on Sunday!

Re: 2013 New Beginnings: Hop on the Hopman Cup Express

Could Isner be injured? Or just suxing?

Re: 2013 New Beginnings: Hop on the Hopman Cup Express

When does the Vee's match start? Right after Tsonga-Isner or is there a delay in between.
